campaigns in just a minute. first, we have a very interesting election day from the state of new jersey that they tell you about now. it involves you of victims of super storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united sta

? >> well, don's it -- don it is easy if there is a state law that says you can change the election date in the state of an emergency, the law that says you can add a voting day if fewer than 25% of voters cast ballots, due to an emergency. otherwise, there are big challenges, secretary of state in connecticut, denise merrill was on cnn a little while ago. she said she did a tour of places like greenwitch, bringport, finding a lot of elderly people clustered along the shoreline. concerns that some are still in shelters, people have no power, so polling is one of those issues that sort of goes farther down on the list. and if you listen here for just a moment, you can hear her talking about that. >> and i did a tour yesterday of places like greenwitch, and our biggest city like bridgeport, where there are frail, elderly people, there are concerns there, some are still in shelters. many don't have power, we do have power at most of of the polling places but i think there are concerns about actually reaching people and getting them to vote. >> and don, some of the states affected by the sto

candidates with just three days left to go until election day. barack obama and mitt romney are making the most of every minute. both are crisscrossing the country and hitting the crucial battleground states one last time. the president's first stop today was a rally in ohio where he told a cheering crowd that his economic ideas are working. he's also stumping in wisconsin, iowa, and virginia. all today. and as we mentioned, wisconsin is one of those critical swing states the candidates are concentrating on. and campaign workers on both sides are out knocking on doors, trying to get people to the polls. white house correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yester
's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared that, he was going to be okay. barack obama gets more out of it. as you can see, he's not emphasizing the unemployment rate when he's speaking. mitt romney is doing that math that doesn't work thing again. barack obama said that the unemployment was going to be this and now it is this and as a result 9 million people are out of work. that's just not math that works. i don't think either of them are convincing anybody right now. this could have hurt barack obama. it is not going to hurt him. i don't kno
in all the impacted states take this seriously, listen to your state and local elected officials. my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. and we're going to cut through red tape. we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. we want to make sure we're anticipating and leaning forward into making sure we got the best possible response to what is going to be a big and nasty system. craig, would you like to add something? >> again, as the president says, it's really going to come down to taking protective measures. if you haven't gotten ready, go to ready.gov. but also protect your neighbors. this is a big storm and we need to be there for each other. >> ready.gov for the general public, if you need to know how to respond, that's where you can get centralized information. i think craig's point is exactly right. in times like this, one of the things americans do is we pull together and we help out one another. so there may be elderly populations in your area. check on your neighbor, check on your friend, make sure they are p
in this election. now, change is a future where we reduce our deficit in a way that's balanced and responsible. i signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work, but if we're serious about the deficit, we also have to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says wh

the national election, and we all know that it is critical, and we all know that today's jobs report is also critical. a brand new number gives both campaigns a whole lot to talk about, and we do plan to talk about it, too. we will. but, my god, have you seen staten island today? talk about a battleground. this is gut-wrenching. the struggle for mere survival is playing out in a new york borough of this country's largest city 3 1/2 days after the onslaught of superstorm sandy. the extent of the devastation in staten island, and the desperation there is only now coming into focus. take for instance the death toll alone. at least 19 people, and that is almost half of the total for the entire toll for new york city, a and there is no light. there is no heat. there is no power. food now has been running short. fear has been running high. just listen to this woman. >> we are going to die if we get killed with the weather. we are going to die. we are going to the freeze. we have 90-year-old people. we are going to die. you don't understand. you have to get your trucks here on this corner, now. >>
